SN definitely flew 727-100's en 737-300,-400 & -500's too. I remember seeing at least once a 737-300 at ANR.
and i'm still not sure about the 727-200's. Maybe on a short term lease, but the OO-STA e.s. were -100s

Narita was not open in the early seventies. This was probably after the O'Hare AA DC-10 crash in 1979.

Re: Short flights on wide-body planes

I flew lots of shorthaul widebody flights in the USA and Canada in the eighties and early nineties.

LGA-YYZ AC767
YYZ-ORD AA DC10
SNA-DFW AA DC10
DEN-ORD UA DC10
BOS-DTW NW DC10
ATL-DFW DL L1011
these short widebody flights are now mostly replaced by boring 737's or 320's...

Re: Air Canada 767-300

I've flown them several times the last few years (all economy flights) and to me they are one of the better North American Airlines. I consider them to be at least on par with Delta and certainly better than AA or UA. So not great but not bad at all. The 767's are old, (and it seems like they've bee...
